    • Ricky: You know, the funniest thing happened at the club tonight. Lucy: Oh? Ricky: A strange girl got into the chorus line. She was terrible too!(walks into the closet) She was really ugly, and had the worst figure I've ever seen. And she didn't know any of the steps at all! Lucy: How could a thing like that possibly happen? Ricky: I haven't got the slightest idea! (walks out of the closet wearing the long black wig Lucy wore in the show; Lucy screams)

    • (Ethel falls on the floor when Ricky opens the door.) Lucy: Come on in, Ethel. Ethel: I was just polishing the door knob. Lucy: I suppose you heard everything. Ethel: No honey, not a thing. Lucy: I just quarrelled with Ricky. Ethel: I don't blame you. Who does he think he is going around tearing girl's black lace blue jeans? Lucy: Didn't hear a thing, huh? Ethel: Well I might've caught a word here and there.

    • Ricky: (about Rosemary's outfit) It's great if we don't get raided.

    • Ricky: Lucy, you can trust me. I'm as faithful as an old dog. Lucy: Yeah, Old Rover.

    • Lucy: (about the item in the paper) Oh Ethel, it's just a publicity story. Ricky is trustworthy, fine, honest, and loyal. Ethel: Well if he was brave, clean, and thrifty he'd be a Boy Scout. Cat's eye patrol, of course.
